March 2009 – part fansite, part cultural critique, part exercise in stalking – is a website devoted to Cory Arcangel. Featuring animated gifs, collage, and textured backgrounds, embraces an aesthetic deemed by Arcangel as “dirt style.” Dirt style, as Arcangel defines it, is the “true spirit of the web.” The site includes interpretations of Arcangel’s projects-instead of endless SuperMario clouds, Princess Toadstool endlessly waiting for Mario. Instead of Number of the Beast compressed 666, the song 500 Miles by the Proclaimers compressed 500 times.
